CS Anne Waiguru to sue Raila Odinga for allegedly linking her to NYS graft
NAIROBI: Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru has threatened to sue CORD leader Raila Odinga for defamation over claims of linking her to the National Youth Service (NYS) saga where more than Sh700 million shillings are believed to have been lost.
Through her lawyer Mohammed Muigai, Waiguru says Raila’s List of Shame released in July was false and injured her hard earned reputation.
The lawyer says in uttering the statement: “We will not take the President seriously on the war on corruption until all thieves are treated equally. The law must apply on scandals over IFMIS, NYS, and IEBC in the same ways as the roads and other ministries,” Raila was reckless and did not bother to verify the accuracy of his claims.
The lawyer says should Raila fail to apologise in the next seven days and cease uttering similar words, he will be sued for damages.
